Um, OK Jeremy.  I believe you, but how does one figure that out from the 
book?  I looked in section 3.2 and that sends me to freshmeat.  I don't 
see any indication there that the version is HJL binutils.  I also don't 
see any indications of the version in sections 5.4 or 6.13 (not that I 
would expect it).
